Answer by Dipanshu 08 August 2010

Hi Ajay
The price for the vehicle seems to be a bit on the higher side.Chk out for ford ikon flair 2003+ model which u wil get for similar prices.

Answer by Arun 08 August 2010

its not worth buying ford,high maintenance & low mileage would be the prerequisites that you are going to invite on this deal.....take care

Answer by John Panicker 08 August 2010

Used Ford IKon, that too 1.6 and year 2000, not advisable at all.
Go for esteem or accent.

Answer by Abhijit 08 August 2010

why IKON ? get other reliable cars like esteem/Accent. Even 2000-2002 model honda city will be very good.

Answer by Sagar Ade 08 August 2010

A universal principal, never go for a deal which is "Too good to believe". However the purchase is not recommended. Old Accent or Esteem (3 Box Car) purchase will be better and very economical in running with a CNG Kit installed.

Answer by VKAgarwal 08 August 2010

its a high maintenance & low mileage car u dont get the parts also, better go in santro any time or wagon-r u can also go for esteem

Answer by Deven Sheth 08 August 2010

personally from my experience,the deal is expensive and the car has also clocked many kms.go for an accent or an honda city.

Expert`s comment:

Though the offer seems to be too good, the factors to be considerd are the maintenance cost which would be bit on higher side as it has already covered 90K KM.At mahindravehicle is sold after conditioning.In overall it will be worth going for the same.

Answer by Shiva Shankar 08 August 2010

hi i would suggest to go for an esteem whats the reason beyond ford flair is 1.3 u would get average mileage 1.6 u would get very minimum ultimately spares of ford in company s reduced to beat competetion but its luxury car & high speed vehicle

Answer by Sivaranjan 08 August 2010

price is too high.As per market price its value is around 80k.Also consider for its High maintenance cost and low Mileage.

Answer by S K Manocha 08 August 2010

Endura engines are worst if interested in Ikon then go for 2003 and above models.

Answer by Salam 08 August 2010

A Big NO to this.

Answer by Atul S 08 August 2010

Its not advicable to go for such an old car. Check out for ikon flair 1.3 with rocam engine 2004 and above it offers better mileage with a/c than accent in both driving condition.its spacious and rear seat best in its class.

Answer by Manjunath 08 August 2010

the spares are too expensive and the maintenance is also costly strictly NO-NO-NO

Answer by RAJU SINGH 08 August 2010

Go for it if you are ready to afford the maintenance part. Pricing is on higher sider.
